Exhibition Matters

It has been a busy time running up to Summer Exhibitions and Markets. In July we visited Galway for The Potters Market which takes place annually during Galway’s Arts Festival.

At Potters Market Aug 2017

It’s open air and always dependent on the weather so this year we lost one of the two days due to incessant rain on the Friday. Saturday was beautiful with blue skies and lots of sun so the crowds came out and the market was busy all day.

 

Yesterday our show with Form Carlow opened in Kilkenny and will run until Aug 20th. We are delighted with the venue in The Castle Yard and Kilkenny will have have lots of visitors for their Arts Festival.

We will be offering them lots of beautiful pieces in metal, stone, ceramic and textile to take home with them when they leave.

 

I will also be showing work at the Clayworks exhibition in Dublin. This exhibition celebrates the 40th. anniversary of the founding of Ceramics Ireland (formerly The Craft Potters society of Ireland). Showing here is particularly pleasing as this organisation has played a big part in my clay work over all those years.
